Spent last night at Island Cove Marina. We had anchored out in Huss Lowe Slough nearby, but the cove was so filled with green stuff in the water that we couldn't get into the dock we were aiming to use...or find another place within dinghy distance to walk Lucy. The winds were higher than expected, having looked at the weather reports, but we had a good hold with the anchor. Called ICM and they had a slip for us alright...an 80 ft covered slip! We were glad for the "room to roam" as we made our way in the slip in the wind. Split an order of loaded nachos from the Mexican restaurant here...and life was good. ;-). Today we're headed through Chickamauga Lock, about 6 miles south, then to an anchorage at Shellmound, near Nickajack Lock.
